PhoneStream system protects me against bogus complaints

From Lee Martin

I’d like to enlighten you again on the benefits of the client management system, MortgageStream.

I have just installed the PhoneStream system as an add on to the administration system. I wish all systems were as easy to set up and use. I just plugged it in and now have a system to record all conversations with everyone connected with any case, and save it automatically against the client file. Imagine my joy when I receive the mortgage offer and call the client, verifying they are happy and wish to proceed…. all their comments saved forever.

Later they may call and say “Hey, you didn’t tell me…” and I can, “Yes I did. Listen…” Click, burr…

Seriously, if you want to protect yourself against unfounded criticism or complaints, get this now. It will pay for itself.
